  • Bio Info:
    Vinny Testaverde was the 52nd winner of  The Heisman Trophy as well as an exceptional NFL quarterback.
    Vinny Testaverde, in common with all great quarterbacks, knows that his offensive line makes or breaks the day for him, and no one has been more generous in praise of his blockers than the 6'5", 220-pound aerial wizard from Elmont, Long Island, New York. Let that most successful of college football coaches, in terms of winning percentage, Oklahoma's Barry Switzer, tell you how good Vinny is as a quarterback. "In 21 years," Switzer said, after Vinny had thrown four touchdown passes to beat his number-one-ranked Sooners earlier in the season, "I have never seen a better quarterback." To add some statistical weight to Switzer's appraisal, consider that through the first nine games of the 1986 season, Vinny had completed 154 passes in 242 attempts for 2,249 yards and 24 touchdowns. His completion percentage was 63.6, but what was perhaps even more impressive was the fact that he threw only eight interceptions. He is, in addition, Miami's all-time leader in career touchdown passes, with 46. Vinny Testaverde was the number one selection for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and now plays for the New York Jets. He and his wife Mitzi have one daughter, Alicia Marie, and one son, Vincent, Junior.
